Iceberg lettuce is a salad staple and whether you’re prepping large salads for a buffet or just trying to get the kids to start eating vegetables, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself cutting a lot of it. Use this trick to save yourself some time in the process!
Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply, and in today’s episode, I’m going to show you how to cut through Iceberg Lettuce in a much more efficient manner. Here’s the old fashioned traditional way we would just cut through a head of Iceberg Lettuce. Probably cut in half of some sort, split the halves, try to identify where the core’s at. That way we can rip out this core whether you cut it out or you rip it out with your hand. There’s obviously a lot of manual work right here. Then you can finally start cutting your lettuce for your salad.
However, I’ll show you a quick and easy step to get that core out of this Iceberg head. See the core right there? Slides it right out. Now you can start chopping away on your lettuce. I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply. Here’s to a better mise en place!
